Hotel W Barcelona, Spain

Impressive architecture on the Mediterranean

Situated directly on the famous Promenade La Barceloneta with breathtaking views over the Mediterranean, the boutique hotel W Barcelona attracts attention with its distinctive sail-shape and mirror-finished facade of silvery glass. At over 100 metres high, this building by renowned architect Ricardo Bofil is a striking symbol of elegance.

The hotel’s 26 floors offer 473 rooms, of which 67 are suites. A fitness centre, spa and several bars and restaurants all provide guests with exclusive comfort and luxury. This includes a modern electrical installation, which covers every aspect of security, ease of use, long-term reliability and cost effectiveness.

The obvious choice was the JUNG LS 990 switch range and the FD design, both in high-quality stainless steel, in combination with the intelligent KNX system. JUNG provides a smart solution with building technology that is effective and easy to use. The hotel strives for energy efficiency, especially with the lighting controls. Presence detectors in the corridors regulate lighting depending on both movement and ambient light levels, resulting in a reduction in electricity consumption.
